Jim Edmonds Reportedly Wants Full Custody of Kids; Claims Meghan King Isn’t ‘Present’ & Leaves Kids With Nanny; Meghan Fires Back Calling the Allegations ‘Laughable’ Plus, Says Jim Has A ‘Tattered Values System’

Exes Jim Edmonds and Meghan King are finding co-parenting quite complicated.

According to a new report from Us Weekly, Jim is over co-parenting with Meghan and wants full custody of their three small children: daughter Aspen, 3, and twin sons Hayes and Hart, 2.

“Jim is talking with his legal team about getting full custody of the children because he is getting increasingly upset that Meghan has been out of town during portions of her custodial time,” a source close to the Edmonds family reveals. “There have been numerous times where Jim has brought the kids to Meghan for her custodial week only to find she is out of town, and he has to leave them with Meghan’s nanny.”

The former MLB star and the former Real Housewives of Orange County star married in 2014 but split in October 2019 when Jim filed for divorce. This came after Meghan accused Jim of having an affair with one of their children’s nannies. Jim denied the accusation and insisted he never cheated on Meghan.

The ongoing Coronavirus pandemic has made things even more complicated for the estranged exes. Meghan is currently splitting her time between Los Angeles and St. Louis.

The source says that Jim “has been told Meghan is looking for a second nanny” to help care for the kids.

“[This] raises his concern even more about the amount of time Meghan is away during her custodial time and the amount of time she is actually spending with the children,” the insider adds. “Jim feels if Meghan cannot be present during the week she has the children, then he should just keep them at his house and not leave them with the nannies.”
